If you manage an apartment complex, its safety and that of its residents is your responsibility. You must have a reliable locksmith’s contact on your dial pad at all times to ensure optimum security at all times.
Locks can get damaged over time because of usage and extreme weather conditions. Worn-out locks are a threat to your building’s security as many people move in and out throughout the day, and you cannot keep a tab on everyone.
Kids living in an apartment complex often come downstairs for playtime. Having an unlocked pool area can put the lives of these children at risk.
The pool area is probably the most crowded spot in an apartment complex, with countless people going in and out nonstop. They open and close the lock with wet hands, and excessive moisture can lead to rust and corrosion inside the lock keeping the door from closing correctly.
Not only do you need to get the pool area lock rekeyed regularly, but you must also inspect it from time to time for signs of wear and tear.
It’s imperative to change or rekey the locks whenever an individual apartment owner moves out. They may still have the keys to the apartment, and not getting them rekeyed can become a safety for the new residents. In some states, the law requires apartment complex owners to change or rekey the unit’s locks before the new residents move in. So, unless you want to get sued for compromised security, it’s a smart idea to get the locks rekeyed.
Storage Rooms or Closets
Every apartment complex has storage rooms to keep important tools and equipment. Maintenance and cleaning staff usually has the keys to these rooms. But have you ever stopped to think how many staff members leave the job without notice or how many keys you may have lost to date? Plenty, right? It’s probably time you consider rekeying your locks!
